Single-Origin Coffees
Precision Mahlkonig Grinding

Welcome
S&W Craft Roasting is a small owner-operated specialty coffee roasting company located in central Indiana. We strive to provide consumers with fresh roasted single origin coffees delivered to their door at a fair price. Our coffees can be enjoyed for around $0.50 per cup. Please click on the Single-Origin Coffee tab, above, to browse our current offerings.

We are fascinated with the variety of naturally occurring flavors found in single origin coffees. All of our offerings are responsibly sourced and carry various certifications. We use no natural or artificial flavorings or preservatives in our process, so everything you taste comes from the coffee itself. Our roasting philosophy is to roast just dark enough to bring out the best flavor traits of each bean. Most of our roasts are light to medium, or City to Full City. All of our coffees are roasted in our Agtron controlled 12kg Sasa Samiac drum roaster, and are sold in 1 lb units. Roast dates are hand-written on each bag. Most orders are processed within one business day, and are picked up by the carrier on the following business day. For Priority Mail, allow 1-3 days transit time (or 3-5 days total, from ordering until you receive your order). For smaller orders, the lowest per-unit shipping cost is for 3 lbs via USPS Priority mail. Up to 3 pounds ships via USPS Priority Mail for under $7. Ground shipping becomes more cost effective for orders over 8 pounds.

APO/DPO/FPO shipments: YES, we can ship to you! As a veteran-owned company, we're proud to offer a 30% Deployed Discount to all APO/DPO/FPO addresses using discount code 'Deployed' during checkout.

Purchasing and Storage:

We recommend only ordering as much coffee as you can use in a 3 week period. Roasted coffee needs to de-gas for 2 to 5 days (depending on the origin) to develop the flavor. Due to transit time, most of our origins will be at their prime when they arrive, while some may improve in flavor after a few days. Your coffee will be at it's peak flavor for about 2-3 weeks, after which the flavor will begin to decline. After 10 days a piece of tape may be placed over the degassing valve to retain flavor. Store your fresh coffee in a dark, cool place (think pantry or kitchen cabinet away from the stove, NOT refrigerator or freezer).

To maximize your brew's flavor, we recommend purchasing whole beans because once ground, coffee stales in a matter of hours. However, we do offer precision Mahlkonig grinding for a small fee. Please specify your desired grind level (or brew method) in the comments section during checkout. Beans may be shipped in PLA (corn-polymer) lined paper bags with tin-tie closure or heat-sealed valve bags with resealable zip closure, depending on whether it is whole bean, ground, or 4oz samples.

Brewing:

We recommend using a burr grinder to prepare only the quantity of coffee which you will be using immediately. Brewing with a French Press or pourover will highlight the brighter fruity and floral notes of a coffee, while a drip machine will bring out the deeper roasty notes and sweetness. For brewing, we recommend a coffee to water ratio of 1:16 (just under 2g/fluid ounce or 2 Tbsp per 6oz cup). Grind size, coffee to water ratio, and brew style greatly affect the brew flavor and these should be adjusted to fit your personal taste. Please join us, /u/swroasting, on Reddit in /r/coffee to discuss brewing methods in more detail.

Tasting Notes:

We know what we like, but we are not professional cuppers. We combine our own opinions with cupping information from reputable outside sources who have more extensive flavor vocabularies. These should be regarded as guidelines, not guarantees, because a given bean's flavor can vary greatly, depending on fine variations in the roast profile and brewing method (grind size, water temperature, mineral content, etc). Our detailed cupping evaluations are available through the Angel's Cup app and kccoffeegeek.com has posted independent reviews of some of our coffees.

We offer our preferred roast level to highlight the flavors in each bean, but can do custom roasts, bulk orders, custom & proprietary blends, custom packaging, and private or specialty labeling. Please email customorders@swroasting.com with requests for a quote.

Coffee is a commodity. We strive to offer the best of the best. Most varieties are only available seasonally in limited quanitities, so enjoy your favorites while they are in stock. Our inventory level for each product you purchase is displayed in your cart during checkout.
